Here is the latest example of deep Christian delusion:
The article puts it this way:
A respected pastor, best-selling author and founder of a major ministry to teens predicts an imminent “an earth-shattering calamity” centered in New York City that will spread to major urban areas across the country and around the world – part of what he sees as a judgment from God.
David Wilkerson, author of “The Cross and the Switchblade,” a book about his ministry to troubled New York street kids that was later made into a movie starring Pat Boone, tells readers of his blog this weekend that he is “compelled by the Holy Spirit to send out an urgent message” about his prediction.
“An earth-shattering calamity is about to happen,” he writes. “It is going to be so frightening, we are all going to tremble – even the godliest among us.”
Wilkerson’s vision is of fires raging through New York City.
“It will engulf the whole megaplex, including areas of New Jersey and Connecticut. Major cities all across America will experience riots and blazing fires – such as we saw in Watts, Los Angeles, years ago,” he explains. “There will be riots and fires in cities worldwide. There will be looting – including Times Square, New York City. What we are experiencing now is not a recession, not even a depression. We are under God’s wrath. In Psalm 11 it is written, “If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?”
You read that, and, if you were to believe it, it is AMAZING. The all-knowing Holy Spirit Exists! The Holy Spirit is talking to people on earth today, foretelling the future! That means that it does not take away free will for the Holy Spirit to expose itself to people! Meaning that the Holy Spirit can openly expose itself to all! Wow!
And then, what would be your VERY NEXT QUESTION? The burning question that you HAVE TO ASK immediately upon hearing of this revelation? It would, of course, be WHEN??? On what day will this raging fire engulf “the whole megaplex, including areas of New Jersey and Connecticut”, so that we may take action to avert the disaster and save untold thousands of lives?
Oh, sorry, the Holy Spirit won’t say:
“I do not know when these things will come to pass, but I know it is not far off,” Wilkerson concluded in his message. “I have unburdened my soul to you. Do with the message as you choose.”
